About the Project

Phantoms of the Past: Slavery, Resistance, and Memory in the Atlantic World places undergraduate student researchers at the center of new transatlantic network that examines 18th and 19th-century slavery and antislavery through histories, texts, images, and cultural memory. Collaborative community-based research is tied to short-term student exchanges between the partner universities of Huron University College and Bath Spa University.

The project is supported at Huron University College through the W. Galen Weston Fund for British History at Huron; a Huron Pilot Research Fund grant held by Drs. Bell, Brooks and Reid-Maroney; the RBC Foundation and the Trish Fulton Community-Based Learning Fund at Huron; and by Bath Spa University.
